Jackie Gleason in The Life Of Riley aired 02-21-50 Ep21
July 29, 2012
As I've stated on every review I've done of this series, 22 minutes is short by 1950 standards. Maybe this is an edited syndication print?
This show is OK, but not one of the better shows of the era.
I wonder what movie they went out to see....

Home Sweet Home (The Life of Riley).
Season 1, episode 21.
Original air date: 21 February 1950.
Cast: Rosemary DeCamp (Peg Riley), Jackie Gleason (Chester A. Riley), Lanny Rees (Junior Riley), Tim Ryan (Policeman), Sid Tomack (Jim Gillis) and Gloria Winters (Babs Riley).
Compare to other series of 1950; like: `What`s my Line` `The Jack Benny Program` or `The George Burns and Gracis Allen Show`; THE LIFE OF RILEY is a scrap.
